Cover of Greatest Hits

From Greatest Hits and 37 other releases

“Get On Your Feet” is a single by Gloria Estefan. It was released in 1989 in U.S., Japan and UK and in 1990 in Europe as the second single from the album Cuts Both Ways whereas Oye Mi Canto (Hear My Voice) became the second release of the “Cuts Both Ways” album in August 1989. The song “Get On Your Feet” became a major hit charting on the German Singles Chart at number 46, Irish Singles Chart at number 5, Dutch Singles Chart at number 12, UK Singles Chart at number 23, U.S. Billboard Hot 100 at number 11, U.S. Billboard Adult Contemporary at number 5 and the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart at number 20.

Estefan’s 1990 tour (which ended prematurely following a coach crash) was named after the track. The track has been featured in several subsequent tours, and was the final song in the Estefan medley performed on the VH1 special “Vh1 Divas”. In performances, Estefan characteristically jumps into the air when singing the title line.

In the popular viral video “Steve Ballmer Going Crazy”, Steve Ballmer danced and screamed wildly to this song at a Microsoft employee convention.

The song was covered by Fantasia Barrino on the third season of American Idol, during a Gloria Estefan-themed episode.

Gloria performed this song with Sheila E. during the seventh season edition of the American Idol charity fundraiser Idol Gives Back. The performance was released as a single and as a video at the US iTunes Store to raise money for charities in Africa and the United States.

The song was included in season 4, episode 12 of the NBC comedy Parks And Recreation.

You say I know it's a waste of time, there's no use trying
So scared that life's gonna pass you by, your spirit dying
Not long ago I could feel your strength and your devotion
What was so clear is now overcast with mixed emotions
